I didn't really mean to call every squirrel in the neighborhood to a feast at my house, but that's just what happened yesterday. Maddy and I collected some adorable little gourds and pumpkins at a recent trip to the pumpkin patch. Since our flower pots were empty, we decided to fill them up with the pumpkins and gourds. Don't they look so cute?
Yes?! Well, that lasted less than a day! The squirrels are evidently starving!
So, I refilled and put the larger pumpkin in there. Looked so cute and fallish! You could see the touch of fall colors even from the street! While I was patting myself on the back for such great work, more squirrels evidently invited themselves over and absolutely demolished my hard work! I would show you a photo of the desecration, but it was too horrible and gross to even photograph! Time to buy the fake stuff and put that out, though in the past, squirrels have eaten that too. Have no idea why they are so hungry, there are only about 5,000,000 acorns in the yard that they are welcome to chomp on and haul away!
[What a great little raker -- I hated to tell her that it would be the first of many times we will be raking!]
Maddy has wondered why we don't put pumpkins out early -- now she knows!! We are enjoying the trees turning color. We love this tree and visit it daily so Maddy can pick up leaves it has dropped. Soon, they will all be on the ground!
We love fall -- it's what comes after that we don't like so much!
